Several lines of evidence indicate that glycogen synthase kinase-3beta (GSK3beta) is one of the candidates for schizophrenia-susceptibility factor. However, it has not been reported the association analysis between GSK3beta gene (GSK3B) and Japanese schizophrenia based on linkage disequilibrium (LD). We provide an association analysis using relatively large samples (381 schizophrenia, and 352 controls) after determination of "tag single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs)." In this LD mapping, we… CONTINUE READING
